Chicago Gluten Free December Events

Happy Holidays! I can't believe it's December already, where did the time go? Once again, I'm a little late in posting the December events. I already missed a support group that was held yesterday. My New Year's resolution is to get better at that. There are a lot of great holiday events this month, but for all you non-Chicago readers, there is a great gluten free event going on all month and you don't even have to leave your warm house. Gluten Free Frenzy is posting the 25 Days of Christmas Cookies, which I think is the greatest idea ever! Stop by and see what she's been baking, she has a lot of great recipes.
